Please bear with me, this is a bit personal and I literally don't know where to write this(and I need to).
Right, on we go. Warhammer has been around me for my entire life. I always found it cool and the games themselves were always fun and it contains some of my favorite games(Mordheim, BFG: Armada, Vermintide) and a bunch of other ones which are enjoyable enough(Total Warhammer, Dawn of War, Dark Omen etc). It is nice, interesting and cool, but!
I like more what it could be or my own version of Warhammer(which is notably less absurd and dark) than the actual Warhammer! I like the inner workings of the Imperium etc, but must everything be soulcrushing(no, there are even books supporting that, but that don't sell shit)? Must every hard won victory be followed by 10 memey defeats? What's up with all the gore and stuff? I like a lot about it, but I HATE the general TONE of it. Like it's all directed at emo 15 year olds, come on, that's just such a waste of potential!
Basically, did you ever want to "break up" with an IP that is a large part of your life? Or how did you manage to go about it? I still quite like those games(and am looking forward to the Hired Gun), but...come on! Atm, I feel like I outgrew Warhammer lore and like I can literally do whatever I want with it(including silly stuff like NobleBright 40k). The lore is garbage anyhow(imo).
What do you think?
(edit: fuck all the skulls!)
